Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a complimentary medicine which has been practiced for thousands of years throughout Asia. It has made it’s way to North America and is gaining a reputation for being an effective form of health care. The approach is holistic and treatment varies according to the individual. An acupuncturist will strategically place fine, sterile, single-use needles into acupoints on the body. These points are found along meridians or pathways of energy (Qi). The needling activates the body’s Qi and helps to restore balance to our physical and emotional health. This enhances our immune system and allows our body’s ability to heal more efficiently.

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession founded on the time honoured belief in vis medicatrix naturae, “the healing power of nature.” It is a holistic, coordinated approach to health care that respects the unique individuality of each person. Naturopathic physicians attend to the prevention and treatment of disease and the promotion of optimal health. They view the patient as a whole person, while symptoms of disease are seen as indicators of improper functioning, imbalance and/or poor lifestyle habits. The goal of treatment is to address the underlying cause of disease and to avoid treatments that might induce further harm, either by producing unwanted side-effects or by complicating the existing disease process. This is achieved through the appropriate application of natural substances and modalities that remove obstacles to health and enhance the body’s inherent healing abilities. Read More
